Nursing, R.N. to B.S.N
Nursing is an exciting profession that is currently undergoing many challenges as the health care system changes. For many associate degree prepared registered nurses (RNs), completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree affords additional career opportunities and a broader scope of practice.
The Kirkhof College of Nursing (KCON) RN to BSN programming at Grand Valley State University includes both fully online and hybrid options with applied learning experiences through clinical practicum in the senior year.
Classes include content on research, evidence-based practice, safety and quality, professional identity, informatics, emergency preparedness, leadership, community and population health nursing. The enrolled student must be licensed as an RN in their state of residency before beginning the senior nursing sequence.
